We got up around 4pm and walked around Milan. I apologize now for the heavy photos and for all the selfies I took. For up to date selfies and photos follow me on Instagram at @thousandneedles. I’m going to try to upload photos and details here within a day or two of the experience but if I get too busy or tired I may give up this experiment.
The hubby and I hung out in the lobby and I knitted for a bit while we waited for our friends to come down.
Quite a few of the eateries we went to were closed and were just getting ready to open for dinner so we kept walking. That was a surprise for us but it must be a Milan or Italy thing. We ended up at Crocetta and our waiter was fantastic and the food yummy!
Oh my god! It was so good. I just stopped talking while I enjoyed my sandwich and cappuccino.
We walked a little bit further and found ourselves in the Piazza del Duomo. And we just started taking pictures…
We couldn’t get into Duomo as they were already closed but we got a lot of outside pics. We will be going back in the next few days.
Next to the plaza is Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and every where I looked there were quilt patterns.
I am not including all the pictures here but after I finally stopped looking at the ground I looked up and it was glorious. I’ve seen pictures of these before, in movies, online, etc. But the experience is not the same and I am in awe of the talent and creativity and genius that went into these works of art.
We walked a lot and took a lot of pictures. Here are highlights of a few of them.
We finally started back and made it to our hotel to use the restroom and rest a bit before going out again to buy necessities – water. Stopped at a pizzeria before returning for good at 10pm. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. And I hope I can keep up with all the walking we’re doing. Today’s step count: 14,880! Tomorrow’s plan: Lake Como.
~ Happy travels!
So cool! I’m just a tiny bit jealous! The food looks fabulous!
